The book showcases the skill and imagination of such notable Geographic photographers as David Doubilet, William Albert Allard, Sam Abell, Jim Stanfield, Jodi Cobb, Jim Brandenburg, David Alan Harvey, and many more.

        Comments about National Geographic: The Photographs:

        After perusing this book for a SHORT time, it's now on my coffee table, for the education of guests. Its biggest ADVANTAGE is also a DISADVANTAGE — its small size: 6" x 6 1/2". I knew this before buying, but it would still be nice to have this book available in its original, LARGE size. Otherwise, I highly recommend this book!

            THIS BEAUTIFUL COLLECTION OF PHOTOS JUST DOES NOT LOOK GOOD IN SUCH A TINY BOOK! IT USED TO BE PUBLISHED IN 9" X12" AND THE 6" X 6" JUST DOES NOT HAVE THE SAME IMPACT.I HAVE TO SEND IT BACK .
